Remember the CCR5 #CRISPR genome editing that Jiankui He did?
Well, it is deleterious, with a >20% increase in all-cause mortality.

Our new work describing de novo mutation dynamics in 33 large, three-generation CEPH/Utah pedigrees is up on bioRxiv (https://bit.ly/2BH7m55 )! Many thanks to co-authors @brent_p, @ziyue_gao, @molly_przew, Lynn Jorde, Lisa Baird, and @aaronquinlan. Some details below: (1/n)

Check out our latest from @tomsasani detailing mosaicism and marked inter-family variability in germline mutation accumulation! Genome sequencing of 33 3-gen. CEPH families with up to 16 grandchildren. To Tom's credit, all mutation data and code avail in Github/Jupyter/Binder

The gnomAD preprint is out! We aggregated 125,748 exomes and 15,708 genomes into a public resource of >240M high quality variants, available at http://gnomad.broadinstitute.org/  (1/5). https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/531210v1 …

A fantastic resource becomes even better. Congratulations to all involved!

Media benefits from a villain geneticist stereotype, and seeks it out. This can address important issues, but the worst thing that could happen is if the image dissuades people from diverse backgrounds from coming and forming their own perspective over the coming decades.

Not of course that quantity alone is good, but (surprise) these papers from @biorxivpreprint are being read, downloaded, and published! 
Great read from @richabdill and @blekhman
